Open Quote This school is average. It doesn't have any extra after school activities even if parents would like to pay for that. Nothing! The feedback from school is zero! You will never know how your kid is doing in a school. The classes is super full. For example, in KG -32 students in one class! Are you kidding? Look at a test scores for 2015!! it so so low!! only 70% of kids are able to pas standard tests. I don't know how this school get 10 points out of 10. I believe that some teacher don't know how to teach kids or they don't care! Of course, classes are big and teachers don't have time to spend with each kid but.. They never send any note to home where parents can help their kids if they struggle with something. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is like a trailer park. Every structure is dilapidated. No air conditioning in any classroom. But the air conditioning in the administrators’ office is running even on weekends (based on my and several other parents’ observations). No cafeteria for students from first grade to the fifth grade. That means: almost all students have to sit outside beside the playground, shivering in winter and spring and being scorched in summer and the fall.
If you expect the administrators there to guard the best interests of the students, perish your thoughts. Getting the very basics, such as air conditioning and cafeteria, is like luxury for all Laurelwood students. Comfort is only for the administrators. I won’t be surprised to see some students get heat strokes. I am more concerned about tree branches falling on the kids when they are eating lunches under the big trees. It is dangerous for the kids.
Don’t expect anything from the administrators. Nothing will be done to protect the interests of the students. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
